A Florida trial judge has prohibited a criminal defense attorney from talking to a juror about his guilty verdict. The defense attorney believes that the juror in question might have applied the wrong legal standard in coming up with his verdict. The defense attorney made this determination based on interviews the juror gave to the media after the trial.
In denying the defense attorney's request the judge wrote that
the court finds that the media comments attributed to one juror in Orr relate to matters which inhere in the verdict and are not properly the subject of a juror interview.
